    Just checked out FiTech! These systems look great.

    Now I know my plan for when the 315W on the boat needs some love... Thanks for the idea!

    I saw an article that said to change the oil on the new Ranger you have to remove the front tire, remove an access panel held on with several plastic clips just tp get at the filter and then remove yet another access panel held on with plastic clips to get at the drain plug. If that is the case that in itself would be a deal breaker for me.

    Not to change the subject but.... have you seen the ads for the new tailgate for GMC/Chevy?
    1-Pretty sure it will only be part of a very expensive package
    2-Nothing else to tout on the truck but the tailgate?
    3-Wonder what Toyota will try to "top that" with and will it retrofit?

    I did see that. And I instantly thought "man I bet that will be expensive to replace when it inevitability breaks"

    I have a friend working in TX right now that just had his F250 platinum pearl tailgate stolen and said it'll cost around 3k to replace everything... I said I think I'd put a base model tailgate on it... haha

    My tailgate has a dent in it, but I'm ok with it, hopefully that'll detour most thievery. Lol

    No problem there......not crowded for winter makes for better 4-wheelin' in the Taco! Our little Clay Center is 800.......maybe if you count dogs/cats.

    What happens when the Ford hits 30,001 miles and the valve seals start leaking or the tranny goes into reverse... sometimes? Meanwhile, the Tacos life is just emerging from its infancy.:) I suspect the 0.3 mpg and the 5 seconds will be looong forgotten by then.
